Sommer[edit]

Why do you continue to remove my content changes to Sommer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Burbank151 (talkcontribs) 14:30, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

(Please add your contributions to the bottom of a talk page and sign it. For help on these matters, see Help:Using talk pages.)
I thought my edit summary at Sommer was quite clear: I removed your entry because it serves no purpose on a disambiguation page. Such pages are meant to direct readers who enter an ambiguous term into the search box to the article they are looking for. For help to understand this subject, you should start with Help:Disambiguation and Wikipedia:Disambiguation, and maybe Help:Wikipedia: The Missing Manual/Building a Stronger Encyclopedia/Getting Readers to the Right Article: Naming, Redirects, and Disambiguation#For Multiple Meanings: Disambiguation; for considerations of editing disambiguation pages, Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Disambiguation pages is crucial. In short, once an article exists, it can be added. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 03:18, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

I have discussed with members of community and they tell me you are "edit warring": a violation of wikipedia rules. Your edits are not cogent and done soley as harassment. If you revert my edit again I will report your actions and move to have you temporarily suspended. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Burbank151 (talkcontribs) 13:09, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

I already replied above. Did you read the articles I suggested? How to you counter the argument, derived from those articles, that your contribution to that disambiguation page is inappropriate? If you want to follow through with your threat, the relevant noticeboard is that-a-way. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 13:52, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Target of Command Prompt[edit]

Hi.

I give up. I registered my objection to your edit summary with a revert, so that it is on the file, but that's purely semantic. And I'll go fix the broken backlinks too.

But there are two other supporting users as well. I am afraid I cannot account for their action. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards,

Straight apostrophes[edit]

I noticed that you had changed to "straight apostrophes" on the Vilar article. What sort of keyboard do you use, because mine is a US one and I don't have a choice? Viva-Verdi (talk) 14:48, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

PS: when I was comparing my changes to the ones you made, maybe I'd not touched the original of much of the article, only re-arranged some text to adjust the overly-heavy lead section. So, now that I look closely, my quote marks show up as " and apostrophes as straight = ' .Viva-Verdi (talk) 15:32, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
I, too, use a US keyboard, and my browser is Firefox frozen at version 22.0 (or occasionally Pale Moon). These browsers, and Internet Explorer, allow distinctive searches where newer Firefox and Chrome conflate searches for straight and curly apostrophes and quotation marks. There are of course no curlies on the keyboard (and no umlauts), so I enter them with Alt+0146 (on the numeric keypad) for a curly apostrophe, identical to the single closing quotation mark, (’), Alt+0145 for a curly single opening quotation mark (‘) and similarly for double quote signs Alt+0147 (“) and Alt+0 148 (”). The article Quotation mark glyphs deals with these. If you search for curlies in this diff view at Alberto Vilar , you should see them only on the left side. If you search for straight quotation marks and apostrophes in this section, you should them only in your text (3 quotation signs and 3 apostrophes). Hope this helps. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 06:26, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Also sprach Zarathustra(painting)[edit]

Thank you very much, Michael, for your correction! It's so useful! I've written this article by myself using some articles about Lena Hades, but English is not my native language, I regret)) Thanks a lot for your help!Vika007 22:17, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

My main concern with the article Also Sprach Zarathustra (painting) is its name. Maybe you can respond at Talk:Also Sprach Zarathustra (painting)#Name. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 04:42, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

La Mancha de Aragón[edit]

Please look at my comment on the talk page of "El retablo de Maese Pedro" and repair the formatting, which I don't know how to do. Thank you.deisenbe (talk) 10:52, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Simple, noncontroversial grammatical edit to 'Franz Schubert'[edit]

My edit to Franz Schubert was simply a correction of the incorrect usage of the adverb "remarkably."

Before: Schubert wrote over 1,500 works in a remarkably short career.

After: Schubert was remarkably prolific, writing over 1,500 works in his short career.

What was remarkable is NOT the shortness of Schubert's career. Many people have short careers. What *is* remarkable is composing more than 1500 pieces during that short career. Thus the adverb was modifying the wrong word, so I rewrote it to be more clear and accurate.

For some reason you want to put bad, imprecise writing back into the article. Don't. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Peezy1001 (talkcontribs) 23:23, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Magic Flute, Easter Egg, etc.[edit]

Sorry about the Easter Egg, I didn't know about this rule. I have added a reference to a book which suggests that the Queen of the Night might represent the Roman Catholic Church itself. See The Magic Flute Talk Page. Goblinshark17 (talk) 18:25, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Driving Miss Daisy (play)[edit]

I added the plot because I had just seen the play and the plot line was accurate. I edited the last line that mentioned scenery from the movie.

Don't know why you couldn't ask first ...

Mishka.medvezhonok (talk) 02:50, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

There was still a reference to the film in the synopsis that you copied from Driving Miss Daisy to Driving Miss Daisy (play): the third paragraph opens: "The film explores". Further, the synopsis is more than that and contains a number of interpretative remarks. There's no need to spread such pieces of original research and synthesis from one article to another. If readers want to read a synopsis, I don't take them to be too ignorant not to follow the link at the top of the play's article. Then there are some subtle problems mentioned at WP:Copying within Wikipedia. You thought your edit was a good idea, I didn't; now we discuss this. This is what WP:BRD encourages, although the article's talk page would probably be a better place. If you still think your edit should be restored, go ahead. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 11:21, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
